She draws her subjects from paintings of the past, bringing small details of these paintings into focus by making them her subjects. Reed picks similar details from a variety of artists that worked in the same period, building a dialogue that shows how painters referenced each other, and how certain fragments of art history shape our contemporary understanding of art.Drawing on selected historic works, Reed states that these forebearers continue to be relevant today, while celebrating the arts lineage of which she is a part. Though trained as a colorist, Reed chooses to work in black and white. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER MORE >
